Russell Wilson season stats

Wilson now has 26 passing touchdowns, leading the NFL once again. He also has a passer rating of 120.8, once again the best in the league. He does have 6 interceptions, but clearly has been the front-runner for the MVP race. He also had a completion percentage of 71.6%, ranked 3rd in the NFL

What to expect ahead from Wilson

He is currently on a historic pace, set to throw much over 50 touchdown passes this year. Wilson could very well break the record for most passing touchdowns in a season, a title held by Peyton Manning.

The Seahawks have a couple of tough games ahead with the Bills, Rams and Cardinals. However, they will then face the Jets, Giants, Washington and Eagles so a lot more action left to come.
